Great change of pace and terrain!

I always take a day and make my way back to Blue Sky! If you time it right, you have the place to yourself and the conditions have always been great for me.

The back bowls at Vail add another dimension to the groomed slopes on the front side. You can just ski the frontside and have a great time but it is worth finding your way to Blue Sky basin and China Bowl. The best way to first ski Blue Sky is the free tour starting at 11am a couple of times... More

This bowl usually gets the most snowfall and keeps it! Big rock Park is a popular glided groomed run. Iron mask is a fun bump run. Even the lifeline is a fun run!

For the past 3 years I've gone skiing in Vail every winter. Blue Sky Basin has consistently been a satisfying mix of a) the most consistent ski conditions b) the least crowded and c) the most interesting terrain. Yes, it takes a while to get there, but people do it for a reason. I've never been lucky enough to be... More

We love the rollers and the trees on Grand Review and Star. Belle's is also a great place to grab a snack or lunch and the views are incredible!

I love going back in to blue sky basin, the only thing is so does everyone else. The best is if I can get in there early in the morning and when everyone else heads over I go to the front of the mountain. The trails are interesting and the views phenomenal. Once I am through the line though I... More

The lift lines were at times long, but we stayed in the back bowls and away from the crowds. The price is costly so my friends and I only ski here a few days during our vacation to Colorado.

Open bowls and gladed areas. Although fair number of skiers it is so vast that not an issue. I imagine Saturday's could experience long lift lines. We did not ski on Saturday.

From the beauty of skiing Grand Review to the fun bumps in The Divide. Great skiing with little crowds.
